I've also heard the traction control/electroinc stability' is barely even noticeable.
I don't even think it has traction control. I think they removed from the GT2.
The guy driving owned a sports car shop and was a drove race cars professionally. Proves to you how easy it is to get squirrelly.
Kinda eery that Ryan Dunn from Jackass died in a *very* similar accident (albeit alcohol involved) with a modified high powered Porsche hitting a pole/tree and burning to the ground.
Sad deal for all involved.
